  • Cook and stir sausage in a skillet over medium heat until crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.

  • Spread pizza dough evenly onto a 9x13-inch baking sheet; sprinkle with sausage and mozzarella cheese. Roll the dough around the sausage and mozzarella, using the method similar to rolling a cinnamon roll. Crimp the roll closed; place seam side down on baking sheet. Brush the roll with olive oil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes.

Made this for Recipe Group...LOVED IT! I did use a roll of hot Italian sausage, but that was my only change. Very easy to make, though the rolling was a bit challenging due to the sticky dough, lol. Everyone really enjoyed this, and I will definitely be making it again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

This was okay. Good base recipe to build on. My husband felt it was missing something. Not sure if it was my frozen dough but this seemed underbaked @350. If I do it again I'd try 375. I made a country gravy using the sausage drippings & 1/5 of the meat and that was excellent on top. Read More

This rating is for the filling as I didn't have any pizza dough. Because the recipe sounded so good and time was short i used a package of tortilla shells making them burritos. They turned out great! Next time I will use pizza dough which I am sure is fantastic. Read More

This is amazing. I chopped up peppers & onions, cooked them with the sausage. Also split up the cheese (1/3 Monterey, 1/3 Mozzarella, & 1/3 Pepper Jack.) Gives it extra flavor, turned out fantastically! Read More

This was delicious! I added some pizza sauce to the inside so that it wasn't too dry, and we dunked it in extra sauce. My husband LOVED this! Thanks! Read More

Recipe Group Selection: 06 July 2013 Delicious and very simple to put together. I used hot Italian sausage and pepper jack cheese because my family likes spicy foods. Browning the sausage took longer than it did to put this together and bake it. A great fast meal for when you want something home cooked on a busy evening. Serve with a salad and hot veggies or fruit and your meal is done. The ingredients are so flexible with this recipe. Different flavors of sausage and different cheeses will change this meal up. Great recipe Veronica thanks for sharing. Read More

Not gourmet but a huge hit with the family. I used less sausage and added diced cooked onion green pepper and some fresh black olives wrapping it up in one of Pillbury's new whole wheat crusts. We dipped the slices in marinara sauce. Next time I might sprinkle some italian seasonings with salt on top of the olive oil brushed crust before baking. Read More

Very good. Cooked sausage with onions and garlic and mixed in a couple tablespoons of pizza sauce before rolling it up with cheese. Excellent taste with not too much for younger palettes. Did bake it at 375 for 25 minutes to brown and crisp dough to prevent splitting. Thank you for this one. Read More

I love this recipe. So much easier to make then some of those recipes that call for an egg mixture. Also I love it with sharp provolone cheese. Read More
